All Church Picnic

Join us on Sunday, July 31, directly after church (around 12:30 p.m.) for a pool-party and picnic at Sylvan Heights club house in SW Portland.

We'll have barbecue set up for any items you would like to grill to share. Sausages (veggie and meat) will be provided as well. Or please bring a dessert or side dish.

There's an outdoor pool with a large patio for hanging out, and an indoor hot tub and plenty of lodge space inside. We will meet rain or shine.  

Don't forget to bring cards or games, your swimsuits, towels, and pool toys!
